The Canon CINE-SERVO 17-120mm T2.95 lens is a new servo zoom lens for Cinema EOS cameras like the C500, C300 and C100. It covers a Super35 image circle an remains T2.95 through 91mm and achieves a max iris of T3.6 at the full 120mm zoom end. [Read more...]
Lensbaby is taking its selective focus lenses to the iPhone for the first time with the new LM-10 Sweet Spot lens. [Read more...]
Zeiss has announced its third Compact Zoom lens, the CZ.2 15-30mm T2.9 lens, to go along with the current CZ.2 28-80mm T2.9 and CZ.2 70-200mm T2.9 lenses. The new lens completes a broad range for the CZ.2 line, which is also the only full frame zoom cine-style lenses in the world. (Canon’s EOS Cinema zoom lenses only cover an APS-C sensor.)

Samyang has taken the wraps off of the lenses it has teased over the past week. While we thought that we might see AF lenses from Samyang, we ended up with new support for several mirrorless camera mounts in a trio of lenses. [Read more...]
Samyang is all about building some hype this week. It released another image on its Facebook page today teasing upcoming lenses. This time, three sillouhettes of lenses appear along with a message: “Coming Soon. Our past is just a story.”
Hopefully, we’ll find out in a couple of days just what those new lenses are…
Samyang is teasing a new lens announcement for March 21. All we have so far is this teaser image, which was shared on the company’s Facebook page yesterday. Previous hints and rumors suggest that Samyang is about to launch a new line of autofocus lenses. Perhaps this will be the first…
Samyang’s current line of photo and cine lenses are well regarded for the optical performance and low price. Offering AF versions of these popular lenses should be a real boon to the company and customers alike.
B&H has the Bower 16mm T2.2 cine lens for $399 (reg. $499). The lens is available in a variety of mounts, including Canon, Nikon, Fuji, Sony E-mount, Sony A-mount and several others. It has geared focus and iris rings with a de-clicked aperture. Check it out here at B&H Photo.
DxO Labs has ran the new Tamron 150-600mm f/5-6.3 Di VC USD lens through its DxO Mark tests and indicates that it beats out other “budget” super-telephoto lenses, including Canon’s classic (and more expensive) 100-400mm L lens. Of course, it offers an additional 200mm on the telephoto end over the Canon lens as well.
The Sigma 18-35mm f/1.8 DC HSM lens is built for APS-C format cameras, providing a 27-52.5mm equivalent full frame field of view. At 1.78 lbs, the lens is not quite a bear; however, you’ll definitely notice an increase and size and weight from other variable aperture zoom lenses built for APS-C cameras (e.g., Canon’s EF-S 18-135mm IS STM and Nikon’s 18-105mm VR). I equate the feel close to the Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L IS lens. [Read more...]
